I am already married, happily at that, but I have a friend that was getting married in March 2014...
My fiance and I went to see his family in another province about a week ago, and everyone is really happy for us. The problem is, he has a few old and ill relatives who are concerned that they might not live to attend our wedding in 2010.
So, my future mother and father in law have asked that if they lend us $5000 on top of the $4000 they originally wanted to give us for the wedding (the 5 grand to be repaid), would we get married sooner.
I don't really want to get married sooner - I won't finish school until December, which means no full-time job until January, and on top of that we are going to Europe next June. I just don't see where the money would possibly come from, even with a generous loan and gift.
On top of that, I'm 22 and don't want to be so young....we JUST moved in together this weekend, so I would like time to adjust to our new life. I like the idea of having almost two full years to plan (even if the first year is mostly just scoping out ideas)
My question: would you consider getting married much sooner to accomodate older relatives who are worried they might die first? I would love to....I might lose my Nan before then, but also there are so many reasons not to.
